Hagiography of St. Anthony the Great

Saint Anthony the Great was born in Lyonese Dauphiné in a small fishing village in 1356. With Modest and honest parents, he had a normal childhood and participated in all the normal daily tasks of a child, and had great faith in Aristotle. His faith enabled him to overcome anything, and he found shelter and sincerity in his faith

One day while he was fishing alone, his oars broke away from the boat and he was stopped in the middle of the lake. It would have been foolish to jump in the water and swim to shore, as there were great risks posed by the quagmire marsh lake. Anthony preferred not to risk sinning by putting his life in danger and decided to stay on his boat to pray. A few hours later, his parents, alerted by the delay of their son, came to his rescue. His faith had saved Anthony from certain death.

His father died in an accident after his horses panicked while plowing a field and the plow ran him down after he fell. At the age of 12, Anthony therefore became head of his family and needed to take care of it. To provide for his family and be near them he worked as a farm boy, as being a fisherman was to be separated from his family for long periods. But in this village of fisherman the children laughed at him. He had started talking to the animals.

An anecdote tells that one day, one of the best dairy cows of the village suddenly gave sour milk for unexplainable reasons. Neither the farmer nor apothecary could find a remedy for this evil. Anthony talked to the cow and the cow once again started to produce the most excellent milk.

Some villagers suspected witchcraft by Anthony because of this and went to talk to the Archbishop of Lyon. The Archbishop went to the village to see things firsthand and to talk with Antthony. He soon discovered that the future saint, far from being possessed, had an extraordinary strength of faith and the Archbishop convinced Anthony to dedicate his life to the Church. At age 32, Anthony made the decision to travel and spread the word.

He traveled throughout the Duchy until he learned that the religious capital of the duchy, Vienna, was the victim of famine. Animals were dying for unexplained reasons, fruit and vegetables were few and not very nutricious and tthe population were starving and crying famine.
He decided to help the villagers anyway he could prayed that with the comfort of his faith, their minds would open and bear the ordeal.

He arrived in Vienna January 17, 1389. His presence went unnoticed by most, but there was one who noticed him. A pig farmer received a visit from Anthony as Anthony wished to see farms. They exchanged a few words and Anthony prayed for the beasts of the poor man who were all in poor shape with many runts. Anthony refused the hospitality of the peasant and went looking for a place to sleep. It is said that Antony went to spend the night in the middle of the forest of Vienna and there he spoke to God.

That night the pig farmer could not sleep. He tossed and turned and heard strange noises coming from his barn. He thought it was the end. The assumed the pigs were in the process of dying and with them the hope of properly feeding his family.

In the morning, there was a strange silence on the farm. Anxious, the farmer went to the barn to see if his fears during the night were justified. But there he found a great surprise! Suddenly he saw a pig appear; then two, then five, then fifteen ... But how was this possible when only the night before there had only been three? He recalled his talks with Anthony and the prayers he saw Anthony doing the day before for his animals and to save his family from starvation.with Antoine came yesterday, and had prayed for his animals and save his family from starvation.

He ran to town to tell his story. Other farmers, skeptical at first, could not believe it. But they had to face the facts, as Anthony traveled from farm to farm praying and the animals multiplied and healed. Through his faith and prayers, he saved Vienna from starvation. The farmers appointed him "Anthony the Great," and he eventually moved on after the town was saved.

The elders tell us Anthony then went to the north towards the barbarous regions beyond the borders of the Holy Roman Empire, in regions so remote that the Aristotlein faith had not arrived. Wherever he went, he spread the word of Aristotle and the faithful grew. It is said that in south-eastern France, he would inflate geese livers (a strange delicacy) until they were gigantic. From everywhere, tales came, telling the same kinds of events - That wherevere there was starvation and desperation Anthony would pray and Nature would multiply and provide food for all.

His fame spread to Fachat, and to Yvan, a tribal leader from the north. Because of these prayers that Anthony was doing and people were witnessing the faith in Aristotle grew. Yvan Leterminus saw his power weaken. Yvan had Anthony hung, drawn and quartered on January 17, 1407, and his remains were thrown into a meadow.

It is said that the following year, an orchard was seeded, and that plums trees gave fruit throughout the year. Once a fruit fell or was picked up, another would appear. One day Yvan was cutting trees. And the next day, instead of a trunk, there were two. Furious, the chief took an ax and hit a tree. A huge plum fell on the head of Yvan. The fruit was so large and heavy that it shattered his skull.
